    Just a random question. I hadn't worn watches before I got a Pebble (which was only to hold me off until the Watch came out) and I have worn my watch on my right hand since then even though I'm right handed, I don't why; now of course it would be hard to adjust differently. Just wondering if anyone else does the same?

    Nope, but I'm left-handed and wear my watch on my left hand.

    Apple Watch and all my watches are right handed. It feels awkward on my left wrist.

    Right-handed, and been wearing watches on my left wrist since I was a wee little tyke.

    Now that Scribble exists for the AW, I can't imagine trying to use it with my left index finger. You could say I'm "monodextrous".

    Due to an idiotic tattoo I got as a teenager, I wear my watch on the right wrist, despite being right handed. I've gotten surprisingly good at using scribble with my left finger.

    I do. If I put it on the left I feel that it is a billion times heavier

    I'm right handed, but always wore watches on my right wrist. However, I found that with Apple Watch, I need to wear it on my left wrist in order to interact with the touch interface. As somebody else said, it's difficult to do some things with my left, non-dominant hand. It took me a few days, but I got used to having a watch on my left wrist fairly quickly.

    I'm left handed and wear mine on my left wrist.

    My wife is right handed and wears hers on her right wrist.

    My daughter does it the "normal" way (right handed and wears it on the left wrist)

    I'd say wear it wherever it feels most comfortable :)

    I'm right handed but always worn on my right wrist and always had the crown on the right side too - but with the Apple Watch I find that I'm always accidentally going into time travel as it rubs against clothing. Is there an option to turn this off?

    Left handed, right wrist here.

    Just easier for paying at self checkouts w/Apple Pay and also on the Tube.

    Left handed and I wear it on my right wrist with the crown on the left hand side. At first it bugged me that the crown was below the button but I have gotten used to it.

    Right handed, but I have always worn a watch on my right wrist. Never felt right on the left one.

    Left handed - right wrist. If I wear it on my left hand I'm always banging the watch.
